MAPPING THE TERRAIN 

Based on loose maps of Mumbai, these works draw influence from the art deco architecture of the city that co-exists with dense urban colonies of slums and tall skyscrapers that are abstracted and flattened into interconnecting geometric shapes.Organic forms that flow and seep into cracks and crevasses morphing into different patterns and shapes, are derived from imagery of decaying matter that forms islands and hills in the city of waste. This is contrasted with shimmering colours and landscapes that have been inspired by rock crystals sold on the streets of the city that resemble a microcosm of dense urban colonies and strive to find their space in these built landscapes. This dichotomous nature of the city and its various influences are depicted through these works, through identifiable forms of architecture, its dense urban spaces that exist amidst visible contradictions.
